About This Unit

Big thumb 8 div

The 2nd/10th Field Company was an Engineer Field Squadron belonging to the 8th Division.

Like the remainder of the Division, most of the units including the 2nd/10th Field Company, and the men belonging to it became captives of the Japanese when Singapore Garrison surrendered to the victorious Japanese 25th Army commanded by General Yamashita, on 15 February 1942 after a short and disastrous campaign by the British commanded by General Percival.

We would particularly like to encourage individual historians researchers or members of unit associations to contribute to the development of a more detailed history and photographs pertaining to this unit and its members.
